* The [[ItWasHisSled final line]] of chapter 11 of ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}''.
-->'''Veidt:''' "Do it?" Dan, I'm not a Republic serial villain. Did you seriously think I'd explain my masterstroke if there was the slightest chance of you affecting its outcome? [[YouAreTooLate I did it thirty-five minutes ago.]]
** Also while Nite Owl and Rorschach are looking through Ozymandias' office for clues about who might be targeting heroes, having been unable to speak with Ozymandias themselves.
-->'''Nite Owl''': Rorschach, I think we're in '''bad''' trouble. The person behind this, the person we're up against... I think it's Adrian.
** And:
-->'''Comedian:''' "Jesus Christ Sally, can't a guy talk to his, y'know, his old friend's daughter?" The wham line comes when the listener realizes the reason for the stutter is because he didn't intend to say "old friend" at all.
** A bit less dramatic, but there is a part in ''Under The Hood'' where Hollis is talking about reading ''ComicBook/ActionComics'' as a kid, and mentions Franchise/{{Superman}}, ComicBook/LoisLane and ComicBook/JimmyOlsen. He then says "Of course, all of these old characters are gone and forgotten now."
* ''ComicBook/OneHundredBullets'' #91: "Rothstein is ''dead''. The connection is ''cut''. No more attaches, no more {{revenge}}, no more hundred bullets. Graves' game is ''over''."
* ''ComicBook/{{Cerebus}}'': "Something fell..." The second time this line is spoken, you experience the [[CreatorBreakdown author's schizoid break]]. Wham.
* ''ComicBook/{{Transmetropolitan}}'': One percent.
* ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'': Thaal Sinestro of Korugar. Destiny awaits.
* ''{{Planetary}}'': "I'm the Fourth Man."
* ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'': "No more mutants."
* ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'': "No more Phoenix."
* ''Comicbook/ThePunisher''
** ''[[Comicbook/ThePunisherMAX Punisher: Born]]'': "YES."
** [[Comicbook/ThePunisherMAX Punisher Max]]: "I want a divorce."
* ''ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'' in ''X-Men 138'': The Hellfire Club defeats the X-men, and Wolverine gets mass-increased until he crashes through the floor and winds up deep underground. He rises from the sewer, livid, and utters the line that changes him from secondary character into cult figure...
--->'''Wolverine:''' [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/uncanny-x-men-132-pic1-wolverine.jpg Okay, suckers-- you've taken yer best shot! NOW IT'S MY TURN!]]
* ''The Amazing Franchise/SpiderMan'' #248, "The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man." [[TearJerker "You see, Tim has leukemia and the doctors give him only a few weeks to live."]]
** Another Spider-Man example with a huge impact on the entire mythos and which comes as a revelation not just to the readers, but to the protagonist as well, from ''The Amazing {{Spider-Man}}'' #257:
--->'''Mary Jane:''' You don't have to make up another one of your phony excuses, Peter! Not now--! I know the truth! The ''real'' truth!
--->'''Peter:''' What are you talking about?
--->'''Mary Jane:''' I've known your secret for years! Up until now, I've always thought I could cope with it if I ever had to experience it firsthand -- but I can't! I can't! I just can't cope with the fact that Peter Parker is secretly Spider-Man!
** And then, of course, there's the two words that, if avoided, could have saved a storyline: [[ComicBook/OneMoreDay "Do it."]].
** From ''The Amazing {{Spider-Man}}'' #698: "No... ''I'm'' Peter Parker."
** From Comicbook/SuperiorSpiderMan #19: ''"Gentlemen, I give you [[{{Marvel2099}} Alchemax]]. [[BadFuture Long may she stand.]]"''
* ''Franchise/{{Batman}} ComicBook/TheLongHalloween'': "I am Holiday."
** Also, "You both know, don't you? There were two Holiday Killers."
* ''ComicBook/XMen'' #300
-->'''Fabian Cortez:''' "How could I possibly lose the points for [[{{Magneto}} Magnus]]'s death, unless…?" ([[OhCrap eyes widen]]) "[[BigNo NOOO!]]"
* Young Avengers/Runaways Civil War: [[TearJerker I want you to die.]]
* A few from the ''ComicBook/ChickTracts'':
** The Letter: "Mildred... didn't you hear? Saturday night Frances and Paul's car skidded in the rain and they hit a tree. John's still alive but Frances died instantly."
** Baby Talk: "She's not there. Thelma took her to the [[GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion clinic]]. They left an hour ago."
** The Trial: "When Annie told me I should ask Jesus into my heart, '''I did'''!"
* ''ScottPilgrim'' has two in book 5:
-->'''Knives''': He cheated on us, Ramona. ''Both of us.''
** And later:
-->'''Ramona''': ''(to Scott)'' Good job. Great. You actually made me think that you were a decent person. But you're just another [[BastardBoyfriend evil ex]] waiting to happen, aren't you?
** In book 6, when Scott talks to Kim about the past, and she reveals that he's only been a hero in his own mind, and is in fact a huge asshole:
-->'''Kim''': Simon? The guy from high school? You beat the crap out of him and said we should date. He was 5 feet tall and didn't stand a chance.
* ''{{Preacher}}'': Mom?
** "Herr Starr? Your time is up, Herr Starr."
** [[PrecisionFStrike "Motherfucker."]]
** "And that was how they killed him, covered in the ashes of his dearest friend."
* ''[[Franchise/{{Batman}} Batman and Robin #12]]'': "They're all jokes."
* ''ComicBook/TheSandman'': "He's going to have to kill her."
** "I've quit."
** "Take my hand."
** "I have to kill my son."
** "Judith -- she's my twin sister -- she once joked that if I died, [[WilliamShakespeare he'd]] just write a play about it. [[{{Hamlet}} 'Hamnet.']]"
* ''War of the ComicBook/{{Green Lantern}}s'': "Thaal Sinestro of Korugar. You have the ability to overcome great fear. You have been chosen. Welcome to the Green Lantern Corps."
** ''GreenLantern #12'': "Hal Jordan will become the greatest Black Lantern."
* ''SuicideSquad'': "Frank Rock died in 1945."
** This one's especially painful. It was supposed to kick off a new story arc, but the series was [[CutShort cancelled prematurely]], which caused it to be the ''last'' line in the series.
* ''ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}}'': "What did ''I'' do? Oh, Barry. My ''idol''. My ''inspiration''. That's the ''beauty'' of all this ''madness''. I didn't do ''anything''. Not a ''thing''. You see, it turns out... ''You're the villain today.''"
** "You're Thomas Wayne."
* {{Marvel 2099}}: "Thor is dead. I know. I was there."
* ''ComicBook/IncredibleHulk #600'': "The Good Doctor is out. The Bad Doctor is in."
* Comicbook/AnimalMan #15: "[[BreakingTheFourthWall I can see you!]]"
* The last page of ExMachina #1: "If I were a real hero, I would've been in time to stop the first plane."
* ComicBook/XMen's Messiah Complex is practically built on this.
-->'''Lady Deathstrike:''' "Come to me, children. Come to Deathstrike."
-->'''Wolverine:''' "Negative. The Marauders don't have the baby. One of our side has her. An X-Man took her from Cooperstown."
-->'''Cyclops:''' "Charles, you trained me, Let me do my job."
--> Also from Cyclops: "Assemble X-Force."
-->'''Future Mutant:''' "Yeah. You'll live. Leastways...until something else kills you." Full page showing Cable shot and Bishop aiming at the mutant baby.
-->'''Mystique:''' "I've always been good with children."
-->'''Rockslide:''' "We deserve a piece of the ac--...tion? I take it back."
* Oh god, Comicbook/{{Runaways}}.
-->'''Alex:''' "I just have to do one thing first."
-->'''Karolina:''' "What's that?"
-->'''Alex:''' "Tell you how sorry I am. Really."
-->'''Xavin:''' "Chase... ran away. I believe he had a disagreement with Nico about what to do with Gert's body."
-->'''Ultron:''' "Astounding. I anticipated your defeat of Doom, yet I was 99% certain you would be unable to damage him badly enough to uncover that he was merely one of my androids. [[LukeIAmYourFather Truly, you are my greatest creation."]]
* TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain
-->'''Batman:''' ''[to the New Joker]'' So... it's you. I changed the abort code the night I fired you... ''Dick Grayson''.
* ''ComicBook/SpiderMen''
-->'''Mysterio:''' [[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: MYSTERIO AVATAR ACTIVATED. ]]
\\
'''Ultimate Mysterio:''' Mysterio avatar activated.
* In the Everything Burns crossover between TheMightyThor and JourneyIntoMystery
-->'''Surtur's Herald:''' Leah of Hel knows his (Loki's) character better than her own.

* ''KingdomCome'':
-->'''Norman:''' He had not turned his back at us. He stands in the sky... faith rewarded. (vision of [[BewareTheSuperman screaming Superman, which changes Norman's mood and reaction)]] ... [[OhCrap dear God]]. The threat of Armageddon hasn't ended. [[FromBadToWorse It's just begun...]]
* ''ComicBook/SwampThing'': "He isn't Alec Holland. He never will be Alec Holland. He never was Alec Holland."
* ''ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}'' #80:
-->''recording of Stryfe, as his base's self-destruct activates'': Congratulations. You're human. [[OhCrap For the next eight seconds.]]
* ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyMicroSeries'': Interestingly it wasn't "I'm Jade Singer" but rather Twilight's response of "I know." The story provides a neat twist on the typical "bitter old celebrity who has gone into seclusion" plot and plays with the GenreSavvy readers who can tell where the story is heading from early on.
* ''ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}'': "In a fit of rage, seeking revenge, Aquaman killed [[BigBad Black Manta's father"]].
* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' issue 15: "You are not the first Toa".
* As the run that pretty much reshaped the ''ComicBook/XMen''[='=]s canon, Creator/GrantMorrison's ''ComicBook/NewXMen'' naturally has a few.

** Issue #13
--> : Mockingbird's dead. And so are you.
* ''YTheLastMan'': There's quite a number of them.
** Yorick's reaction to why he survived the plague. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny And it's rather hilarious.]]
-->'''Yorick''': The reason why I'm the last man on earth... [[ExcrementStatement is monkey shit?]]
** The aftermath of what happened in Hong Kong.
-->'''Dr. Mann''': We repaired what we could but I'm afraid motherhood isn't an option anymore.
** Book 10, ''Whys And Wherefores'' are full of them, with the most notable one...
--> '''Yorick, the 17th''': He escaped...
* SonicTheComic Issue #82 has this line from the Kintobor computer;
-->'''Kintobor computer''': Amy, I'm picking up really '''wacky''' readings from the '''Star Post'''!
-->If I'm '''right''' we may have sent all the emerald energy into the '''Special Zone'''.. what I'm '''trying''' to say is that [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Super Sonic]] [[EnemyWithout may still be alive in there!]]

* ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog''
-->'''Nicole:''' "Stop it?"
-->'''Eggman:''' "Fix it?"
-->'''Both:''' "It's too late!"
--> *world blows up*
* ''ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}''
-->'''Kirsten [=McDuffie=]:''' Will you state your name for the record?\\
'''Matt Murdock:''' Absolutely. [[InternalReveal My name is]] ''[[InternalReveal Daredevil]]''.
* ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'': Throughout the Shadowplay arc, there's been an unnamed Senator helping Orion Pax. At the end of the storyline, he's arrested by the corrupt senate and taken to [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Institute]]. Two guards are talking about what's being done to him, and then we get this.
-->'''Guard:''' What's his name?
-->'''Guard 2:''' Senator [[spoiler:Shockwave.]]
** Issue 16: "That was a bad fall. Need a hand?" - [[spoiler:Pharma.]]

And let's face it, "''Superman''"... the last time you really inspired ''anyone'' -- was [[ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman when you were]] ''[[ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman dead]]''.
* ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen''
** ''Volume One''
-->'''[[Franchise/JamesBond M]]''': It's James. [[Franchise/SherlockHolmes Call me James]].

-->'''Campion Bond''': Oh, yes. Yes, it's a [[Literature/TheIslandOfDoctorMoreau hybrid]] all right. [[BiologicalWeaponsSolveEverything Anthrax and streptococcus]], if I remember correctly.
